Compatibility with Firefoh4+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Add some monkey patchs for compatibility with Firefoh4+. Pleas downloat at http://code.google.com/p/meetimer/downloads/list test and report into bugtracker.

Patch for 3.1+ compatibility Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I love this addon. I believe that accountability, not management, is the way to change and control behavior (including my own.) This extension helps me to do that. However, it doesn't help most people because it hasn't been updated in forever, and the developer cannot be contacted. Therefore, I gave it a low rating.

OK, I understand that we're not supposed to post bug reports, but I could not contact the developer (All of the linked sites are fakes.) This is not a bug report, it's a patch. To the mods: Please either contact the developer yourselves, perform the patch and resubmit it yourselves, or let this one through.

The extension as is won't install. However, I was able to make this work by editing a single line of a file in the extension. It's GPL'ed, so this is all legal.

Here's the walkthrough:
1. Follow the "Continue to download" link. Ignore the "Not available for Firefox 3.6.6" warning, because we're going to fix that.
2. Below the EULA, right-click the "Accept and Install" button, and choose "Save link as" from the context menu. Save the "meetimer-0.22-fx.xpi" file to a local directory.
3. XPI is just a unique extension to associate the file with your browser. It's really a ZIP archive in disguise. Use the terminal command
unzip -d meetimer meetimer-0.22-fx.xpi
or 7-zip, or your favorite archive utility to extract the enclosed files to a folder. This will result in 3 files and a folder.
4. One of the extracted files is called install.rdf. This will likely have a Firefox icon in your graphical file browser. Open it in a text editor, like Notepad, TextEdit, or gedit, or vi. Don't use Micro$oft Word, because it will modify the file format and ruin everything.
5. Down on line 22, you'll find a line like: (Reviews don't allow less than and greater than symbols)
(em:maxVersion)3.0.*(/em:maxVersion)
I'm not sure if the * is even valid syntax for this field.
This is what makes it incompatible with 3.6.6.

**DISCLAIMER: There may also be incompatibilities in the code. I took a brief look at the contents of chrome/meetimer/content/, and it's all fairly generic Javascript. In theory, FF 3.6.6 will be backwards compatible with all this code, but I can't guarantee it. You have been warned. **

Change this line to:
(em:maxVersion)9.9(/em:maxVersion)
(Or something greater than the current version.) Save the file. Now it will install!
6. .. Almost. You've got to put it back into the original file format. Navigate to the contents of the meetimer folder that you created in Step 3. Zip the 3 files and folder back up into an archive. Make sure that your folder is organized as meetimer-0.22-fx.xpi/(3 files and folder), not meetimer-0.22-fx.xpi/meetimer/(3 files and folder), because otherwise Firefox won't find the files at the root of the archive where it expects them to be. You can save it to a .zip if your archive utility insists, and then rename it later.
7. Start up Firefox. Select File->Open File (ctrl-O), then navigate to and choose the archive you just created.The familiar "Only install software from sources you trust" window will drop down. The author will no longer be signed, but, if you trust yourself, you can click "Install" when it becomes available. It will ask you to restart Firefox. Do so.
8. Now, you've got it installed! In the addons window, you'll see that "One new addon has been installed", and Meetimer 0.22 is in yellow. Click it, and choose "Preferences". A MeeTimer window will pop up. Configure your preferences here, and enjoy!

You can now delete the files we downloaded, edited, and created. Or, you can store the archive you made in case you want to reinstall later without going through this process again.
Note; This process keeps the old version number, so that a future update that includes legit compatibility patches or bug fixes will be triggered as an update.

[Edited to fix XML code which was eliminated without warning by the submission process.]

Want a try Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi, I want to have a try, but when to support FF 3.6?

was great for building a picture of how a profile is used.. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

until it used a great deal of system resources: slow down fox big time

5 stars for when I was happily using it. maybe all the changes in fox 3.5 will make this extension rewrite lighter and more powerful

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hey,

I cannot install the available version even with special instructions from meetimer website.

I'd love to see your plugin for FF 3.5.
All competing plugins with similar functions have been discontinued...

Best,
Bob

Can't wait for a 3.5.x release!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I think is the best ever and yes we need modes, so we can see how much time we procrastinate on breaks, while working, while studying, etc

thank you and its the best EVER!!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love meeTimer! It was quite a shock when i realized how much time I spend procrastinating on different pages, even at work.

The only thing I think could be improved (cosmetically) is the popup warning message which is a bit ugly in the current version.

I am eagerly waiting for support in FF 3.5. I have recommended it to most of my friends. I personally wait with the update of FF until it is supported in 3.5. Great work!

We waiting for jump to Firefox 3.5
thank you for making it!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great concept, and am using it, but I have a few suggestions:

* Adding sites without having to visit them (already suggested)
* Would it be possible to have multiple modes: e.g. work mode, break mode, research mode (the user creates their own modes). The timers would be the same: you could see stats for individual modes as well as the collective average.

Great idea, needs more polish Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The idea for this extension is excellent, and I will keep using it. However, I do have a few complaints. First, the user interface is UGLY. That would not be too much of a problem, but it is buggy too. The settings window does not work at all: doesn't load or save preferences. Actually, it worked once: right after the installation, and then died. Fix the bugs, and this will be a 5-star extension.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Great idea, but a bug prevents you from assigning websites to categories unless you are actually on the site, effectively rendering the addon useless for me.

This bug has been noted on the addon's support site since August 2008, without acknowledgment from the developer, so don't hold your breath for it to be fixed.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like it, but after I had set up my groups and had some stats built up, something reset and cleared all my stats and reset the groups to the default. I am using Firefox 3.0.5

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Add a feature to alert me when I've spent too much time on blacklisted (or non-white listed) sites and this application will change my life... literally. Maybe have it automatically close firefox when too many "too much time" notifications go ignored.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am using Firefox 3.0.1 and you cannot add any websites into any groups either by right clicking or through the stats page. I know you are not supposed to report bugs here but the website has not place to provide feedback.

Too bad the stats page is broken Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Using this plugin gave me a better awareness of my online habits. Too bad the stats page is broken for me (I'm on FF3.)

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I installed version .22 and it worked quite well - was impressed that the timer stopped as soon at the tab lost focus or the window was minimized, etc.

Unfortunately, I soon found that FF3 on my system was using up progressively more memory ... I typically leave FF open for days at a time, with ~30 odd tabs. Even so, it typically never exceeds 400KB memory footprint.

After MeeTimer, this limit jumped ... FF memory usage would increase, hour by hour - several times I saw it over 1GB before having to kill & restart FF!

I disabled (not uninstalled) MeeTimer to see if that was the culprit ... sure enough, FF memory usage has again leveled out at ~300-400kb.

I do hope the authors can find/fix the presumed memleak issue, because this is a great little utility!
